New Release & Video: Toothless ft. Marika Hackman – Palm’s Backside

Palm’s Backside is taken from the acclaimed debut LP from Toothless, The Pace Of The Passing, released earlier this year

The track features the wonderful Marika Hackman and an acoustic version can be heard below…

Ed says of the track; “Palm’s Backside” was my take on a breakup song but with a twist. Normally breakup songs are about being hard done by and wanting to get back with your ex or about how you didn’t need them in the first place. Palm’s is about realising that your old partner is better off without you and trying to move on as a result. The song is a back and fourth between a guy and a girl looking back at their relationship. Marika Hackman was my first choice to sing the female parts as I have always loved her music and thought her voice was the perfect counterpoint to mine. Filming this session was the first time I had seen Marika since recording the song and filming the original video for it. She turned up on the day and learnt all the guitar parts in 5 mins!”
